China's International Education Initiatives and View of Its Role in Global Governance
Li, Sharon X.
Frontiers of Education in China, v7 n1 p103-123 2012
China is becoming an increasingly important actor in global governance. This paper contends that China participates by promoting its own global governance concepts on the one hand and by complying with the established global norms on the other. The paper introduces several key global governance concepts of the Chinese government and argues that they are likely to persist due to their roots in traditional Chinese Daoist and Confucian philosophies. It then focuses on China's initiatives in education--the creation of Confucius Institutes and China's involvement in United Nations (UN) educational initiatives--as examples of the Chinese approach. Finally, the paper discusses China's educational profile in relation to its broader role in global governance.
